Alimony Reform Legislation Moving in Florida Legislature
Move to Modernize Law Would End Permanent Alimony in Florida
Senator Joe Gruters and Rep. Jenna Persons-Mulicka are moving the 2022 alimony reform bills through their respective chambers.
The Senate Judiciary Committee passed SB 1796 by a vote of 6-3 on January 19, 2022. The bill is now in Appropriations. Please contact each member of the Senate Appropriations committee to respectfully ask them to support SB 1796.
The House Civil Justice & Property Rights Subcommittee passed HB 1395 by a vote of 13-5 on January 27, 2022. The bill is on its way to the Judiciary Committee, its final committee stop before heading to a floor vote. The 2021 version of the alimony reform bill passed the floor vote overwhelmingly less than a year ago.
Florida Family Fairness, along with our excellent lobby team, will continue to work toward finally passing meaningful alimony reform in Florida this session. Your support and help is very much needed and appreciated.
